The 2019 FINA World Aquatics Day
Johannesburg, Sunday, 30th June 2019 - In July 2019, Swimming South Africa (SSA) will join in the celebration of aquatic sports around the world. The FINA World Aquatics Day is a day to celebrate and encourage the power of aquatic sports for social well-being and development in all corners of the world.

The main objective is to encourage the masses around the globe to participate in physical activity in water; whether in pools, rivers, lakes or the open seas. Millions of people worldwide will unite with a common objective: to enjoy aquatic physical activity.

SSA  invites you to join them in the 2019 FINA World Aquatics Day celebrations with two Water Safety Awareness campaigns, taking place as per the following details:

Monday, 1st July 2019 – The Glen High School from 10h00 (c/o Garstfontein Rd & Corobay Ave, Waterkloof Glen)

Tuesday, 2nd July 2019 – Alex Mall – Exhibition starts from 10h00 (London Rd)

Both days will offer an opportunity to promote the aquatic sports on a national and international level and increase the level of physical activity. The activations are aimed at the prevention of drowning, providing the public with vital life skills, as well as creating awareness for Aquatics as a sport, a vision that is shared by both FINA and SSA.

Swimming SA instructors and coaches will be on-site to assist with demonstrations and questions.

We look forward to seeing you there!
